Found this in my webcomic roundup today:
"This comic presents all the major weaknesses of this generation. We can’t work with our hands. We are dependent on our parents. We have been trained to think that we are special, unique, and wise. We whine articulately in order to defer responsibility without taking any action ourselves. We, being moral relativists, don’t believe in virtue or honor (like Dickinson).
Do I bellyache about the degeneracy of society a bit too much? Oh sure, I do, especially for the sheer relief of having vented. But the thing is, afterwards one has to do something about it. Like Cappy Cap says, you've got to have something backing up your currency. Improve your body and mind. Read books and articles. Work out. Improve your inner game. Build yourself and other people as a person. Then maybe one can start bellyaching a little more about how society is going down the drain.
Nigel doesn't have anything backing up his words, no gold behind his paper. Dickinson does.
